Sweet Side

I know this isn't technically "baking" but this coleslaw is so sweet it belongs on a blog called "Sweet Rewards". Now, I am not a big fan of coleslaw in general. Every once in a while, when there is bar-B-Q around, I will have a little bit but I can say with certainty that I never crave the taste of it. Besides the taste, there are the calories, it's pretty high on the list of no-no's for dieters. HOWEVER...this tasty recipe from (photo provided by has changed all of that for me. First of all, it's sweet and secondly it's lower in calories comparatively. It's so simple, bring it to your next family get-together and even the complacent coleslaw customer will compliment your culinary capabilities!

1.5 cups of pre-shredded cabbage and carrots (found in your produce section by the bagged salads)
1/4 cup of pineapple tidbits
1/4 cup of honey roasted peanuts (chopped)
2 tbsp of low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 tbsp of light mayonnaise

mix yogurt and mayo together in a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well coated. Keep refrigerated.
